Hijacked notions of being humane?
Hijacked notions of humanity by the global monoculture!
They infiltrate everything.
Infiltrate our notions of religion, God & spirituality.
Hijack our notions of Oneness.
Hijack our notions of Truth.
Hijack our notions of Love.
Our tendency to cooperate subverted by an impersonal abstraction.
Indoctrinated in profit- consuming fads.
The fabric of our humanity eroded by a transactional mentality.
Worshipping that which passes from hand to hand.
Nothing ever truly contractual.
'Our word,' rarely a commitment.
So mesmerized by unnatural monied interests.
Don’t give in to the cult of global monoculture.
To give in is to stay stuck in the dream within the dream.
Be boldly grounded in truth.
Stay true to LOVE.
Love for humanity!
